Adding Studies to a Chart or Grid Window

TradeStation provides a large selection of studies that can be used to analyze data. These include indicators, ShowMe and PaintBar studies, ActivityBar studies, and ProbabilityMap studies. You can change the parameters (inputs) used in the calculation of a study to better suit your own trading objectives. Adding studies into your Chart or Grid window can also help you evaluate market actions that can be used later when building trading strategies.
